Progressives Hiding In Plain Sight In The Republican Party


I have known for years that these so called “compassionate” Conservatives were “liberals,” and the reality is that they are no better then the progressives on the left. They believe that by taking power away from the States, and We The People, they are doing their jobs. No, they are not doing their jobs, but what they are doing is breaking their OATH to their jobs. Moderates In The Republican Party AKA Progressives.

When Paul Ryan’s budget bill failed to pass in the Senate and there were reports that five Republican Senators joined the Democrats and voted against it, it only took a few seconds to guess three of the five.

All I had to do was think of the Progressive (Socialist) Democrats who are posing as Republicans.

The two Maine(iac) Progressive Senators, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, were at the top of my guess list and next was the Progressive Massachusetts Senator, Scott Brown.

As outlined in “MAINE MANIACS – Olympia Snowe (R) & Susan Collins (R).” here are just a few of the fascist and unconstitutional bills they’ve voted for, which is why they were at the top of my guess list:

New START Treaty
Food Takeover
Bank Takeover
$814 Billion Stimulus Bill
Cash for Clunkers
NEA Funding
DADT Repeal
Cap and Trade as part of a 2008 Senate Amendment
$15 Billion Stimulus Slush Fund
Forced Volunteerism and Child Recruitment
Sonia Sotomayor Confirmation
Elena Kagan Confirmation

Here are a couple of bills that Senator Collins voted against:

Prohibiting Earmarks
Requiring Completion of Border Fencing

It is not enough for us to do our due diligence in elections, we must educate those within our sphere of influence. They have to know that a vote for a Republican is not necessarily a vote for FREEDOM!

maine should join Delaware and form their own country. We have to convince their voters to think otherwise

I agree that there have been progressives in the GOP ever since Teddy Roosevelt. History also shows us that when any of these attempts to have a big federal government grab so much control, whether it is prohibition of alcohol or prohibition of the incandescent light bulb are not going to last. The large majority of Americans do not care to have all these controls forced upon them by the so called do-gooders. It does not work and will be resisted.

A poll done in Maine a few months ago indicated that a majority think Snowe has become to Liberal. There are two primary opponents running against Snowe for 2012, unfortunately, neither one seems to be very strong, as Snowe is way ahead of them in polling. In another poll, a generic Republican, who would be more conservative than Snowe, has the majority. In 2012 there are 23 Democrat Senators up for re-election, and only 10 Republicans. We need to keep the number of seats we have and pick up at least 4 more in order to take control of the… Read more »

Hopefully, and I say hopefully because you still have to comprehend what you read and you still have to separate thinking from feeling, the advent of the Internet will allow for a nullification of the propaganda put out through the MSM these last forty years, but it’s going to be a long slog. Bernadine Dohrn and Ralph Nader are not dead yet, and not giving up.

Soeaking of Progressive Republicans, did anyone see the Greta interview with Bob Bennett? He said that he didn’t lose because of anything he did in the Senate, he lost because it was a “European style election.” He said Voters just didn’t want any incumbent Republicans re-elected, and that it wasn’t against him personally, it was against the Republican party. Then he said it became an anything but Bennett election. Seems that he forgot that a Republican did win that race, and it was surely an anything but Bennett race, strictly because of his votes in the Senate.

Jaded, good post. You laid bare the sorry record of the Maine twins. You convicted them of their liberalism.

Jaded, excellent information about these three Repubs. Thanks for doing the research.

It is people like these Republicans who make it very difficult for us to actually earn the public’s trust right now when it comes to saying that we can and will cut back on spending, reduce the deficit, limit government, etc. With this info you’ve provided, I can go into those kinds of discussions far better “armed” about how they do NOT represent we the people as a whole. That’s sweet! Looking forward to it.
